wrote the obituary of martin luther king, the non-violence was dead. it was rejected. martin luther king could not defeated sir laurie project. and the story really was that the kennedy administration wanted carl sanders to win in 1962, and there was a federal injunction that was placed on martin luther king. so we weren't up against, you know, lori pritchett in georgia. we were really taking on the federal government, and we chose not to do that. and jack always seemed to understand that we were not the problem. i use to a quarrel with the new york times quite a bit because they were -- well, i think they were being polluted by information they were getting, distorted information that there were getting from hoover. and they would come to talk to us like we were the ones that created all these problems in the south. jack never did that. jack understood where the problem was, and he knew -- i mean, i always thought of him as a friend. and anything he ever asked any, i knew i could answer him candidly and truthfully and there would be no downside to it and there were quite a few -- actual

of government. martin luther king was under surveillance. the government can violate your rights. we need that sensibility. governments can use their power to support corporate elites. they come together not just politically but economically. let me say this. martin luther king, jr., could be taken to jail without due process or judicial process because he had a connection with a freedom fighter who was called a terrorist named nelson mandela. he just got off the terrorist list in 2008. he had a relation to a terrorist, and under the present administration you can assassinate americans. you can take them to jail with out due process. we have got a black political prisoners right now in america, and they are in their becausee their love was such they are willing to tell the truth. that is a threat. we do not talk about them. that is what the culture of fear is not just silence. people are afraid. they are afraid to lose their jobs. you cannot have a culture of fear and generate a movement. justice will soon generate into something less than justice. we have to talk about love. mar

martin luther king by a stubborn adherence to the notion that we are all created equal and we deserve nothing less than than a great republican worthy of our consent. the theme of this year's inauguration is face in america's future. the per fengt embodiment of this unshakable confidence in the ongoing success of our collective journey is an event from our past. i speak of the improbable completion of the capitol dome, and capping it with a statute of freedom which occurred 150 years ago in 1863. when abraham lincoln took office two years earlier, the dome above us was a halt-built eye sore. conventional wisdom that it should be left unfinished until the war ended give the financial needs of the times. but to president lincoln, the half finished dome simple bollized the half divided nation. lincoln said, if people see the capitol going on, it is a sign we intend the union shall on. and so despite the conflict with which engulfed the nation and surrounded the city, the dome continued to rise. on december 2nd, 1862 within the statute of freedom, a woman was placed atop the dome where sh

future. as martin luther king jr. once said, injustice anywhere is a threat to just us everywhere. -- justice everywhere. for decades, pro-abortion activists have perpetrated lies about abortion particularly to women. my number 1 -- we have been told that abortion is merely a means of female liberation justice and empowerment. hitting mothers against the unborn is not liberating. it is a horrible injustice that, in the last 40 years, has resulted in 55 -- 55 million aborted babies whose mothers have gone on to live with severe physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual scars. women who have had abortions are 30% more likely to face emotional and mental problems. they are 40% more likely to have a premature birth. and three times more likely to experience drug and alcohol problems during their lifetime. such lies cannot continue. my number two, we have been told that abortion is about choice. in reality, abortion is a false choice. abortion leads to death of a child. robbing society of its future mothers and fathers, nurses, doctors, teachers. a choice to take what is not ours to t
